This hotel used to be my standard budget stay while in Bangkok. The vibrancy of Chinatown just steps away down a horrifying alleyway filled with rats and garbage. As like so many independent hotels in Thailand, once they build it they never do any more maintenance, letting the place just slowly rot and fester away. The front desk was always... More

The hotel is a fair distance away from the Hua Lamphong Train station and the MRT,but during the winter, the walk isn't too bad. It can also be accessed from either Yaowaraj Road or Charoenkrung Road (both of which are major roads with an abundance of convenience stores, food stalls/restaurants, and various other shops).

Check Inn China Town is a budget hotel located down a quiet alley in Chinatown. The room was very clean and included a little kitchenette. Water pressure in the shower was good. If you are into Bangkok street food, this neighborhood is an excellent choice! So many affordable and delicious options nearby.

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
